A new way of keeping pochades in carriers


wire holder

The pochade support is held in place by:

 a. wires which pass through the perforations in the corrugated card  

 b. blu-tac on the underside of the pochade, sticking it to the carrier (not illustrated)

This new method has a disadvantage, notably that a small area of the pochade where the wires sit is less accessible to the brush and will interfere with painting. However, it is worth experimenting with because in  direct sun the pochade buckles, so that when the carrier is closed the painted surface touches the lid. This is particularly an issue with larger pochades. 

The new method also allows pochades to be removed more easily.
